This beautiful pendant was created using a darker version of pale aqua glass and a technique that creates oodles of tiny bubbles in the glass while the bead is being made.
This particular bead is a large oval shaped bead of approx. 1" from end to end and approx. 3/4" around the middle. I felt the beauty of the bead did not require much accessorizing so I kept it simple with a pair of handmade caps and small silver beads. The bead is lined with fine silver tube which holds the caps in place. The bail this bead hangs from is handmade by me using fine silver.
I chose to leave off the chain so the wearer of this pendant can accessorize to their satisfaction. The size and weight of the bead lends itself to a long necklace but the silver bail can be removed if you prefer to wear the bead short.
The bail can also be used with other beads. The piece hangs approximately 3" long including the handmade bail.
